Songfacts®:

  • Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo told MusicRadar about frontman Scott Weiland's lyrical contribution to this tune: "The song is a little sad to me. It's definitely a dichotomy because the music is going one way, it's very rocking and kicking, and Scott is going somewhere very different with his words. He's in a dark place.

    He's talking about his upbringing with his real dad… not a very happy song lyrically. It's pretty heavy. You know, you never know what kind of words somebody might put on your music, and this was one of those cases where I was really surprised. But Scott's an artist and he's got to get his feelings out. He a master at doing that."
